Do you own private land that you want to prevent unauthorised access to? Or maybe you have a car park that requires better traffic control? Barriers and bollards provide you with a great way of regulating traffic and a fool-proof method of protecting your space.

What type of barrier or bollard do I need?

There are various types of barriers and bollards, each designed for specific purposes. With such a vast choice, it's important that you choose the right protection method for you and your workspace.

If you work in a place where forklift trucks or heavy machinery are in operation, you may want to consider installing Safety Bollards. These can be used in walkways to keep pedestrians and vehicles separated, and they protect equipment and other workstations from accidental damage.

Warehouse Barriers combine safety and practicality. They work in two ways; firstly by protecting racking, shelving units and other equipment from damage, which can save you the expense of premature replacement. The second benefit comes from their highly visible yellow and black finish, which sends out a clear and direct visual warning about where the risky area is, to visitors and employees.

No one likes to park in a crowded and poorly controlled car park, and Car Park Barriers enable you to control access to your premises or public space effectively. The highly visible and reflective coating of these barriers gives people safer site access, clear height indicators, and helps to prevent any unauthorised use of your space.

If you manage large crowds of people and are looking for an effective queue management solution, then Rope Barriers and Temporary Barriers are ideal. Suited for short-term deployment, they encourage people to form orderly lines and can be used to keep people away from prohibited and hazardous areas such as traffic and construction areas.

We also offer a wide selection of other barriers and bollards, including Metal Bollards and Retractable Belt Barriers.
